** Creator/JimmyFallon as the over the top announcer Johnny 'Hot Tub' Rocket. He only appears in the match scenes with brief snippets of dialogue, but he's wildly entertaining.

Added DiffLines:

* BrokenBase: The Oliver subplot. Some find it completely unnecessary and adding nothing to the overall film (see below). Others like that he deconstructs the SatelliteLoveInterest trope.


Added DiffLines:

* EnsembleDarkhorse: Buddy Holly due to being played by cult favourite Creator/ZoeBell and quite a bit of {{Fanservice}} coming from her.
* HilariousInHindsight: The amount of LesYay detailed blow, now that Ellen Page is open about being a lesbian.


Added DiffLines:

* OneSceneWonder:
** Creator/JimmyFallon as the over the top announcer Johnny 'Hot Tub' Rocket. He only appears in the match scenes with brief snippets of dialogue, but he's wildly entertaining.
** Drew Barrymore also has very few lines, but Smashley Simpson is such a fun BoisterousBruiser that you still remember her.
* RetroactiveRecognition: Kristen Wiig was known for ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'' at the time but it was right before her real breakout role in ''{{Film/Bridesmaids}}''.

* AdaptedOut: Bliss' life in Bodeen is a much smaller percentage of the film's running time; an understandable reduction considering the visual appeal of roller derby vs. the prosaic nature of Bliss' hometown.



* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: In the alternative store in Austin, Brooke spies some bongs and comments, "Ooh, pretty vases!" The staff think this is hilarious, then one of them quips that, "They're great for tulips, really." One wonders how many of the censors realised a "Dutch tulip" is a fancy way of rolling a joint...



* OohMeAccentsSlipping: Except for Creator/DanielStern and Creator/MarciaGayHarden, NO ONE can hold a Texas accent, and most of the cast [[NotEvenBotheringWithTheAccent don't even bother]].

** A little between Maggie and Bliss, who are bullied by gaybashing schoolmates for their close and exclusive friendship, and are shown to be quite touchy feely with one another.

* LesYay: Eva Destruction and Rosa Sparks. Also, a little between Maggie and Bliss.
** Personally, I find that there's no "straight" way to interpret this film. It's tailored to the female-friendly eye (particularly obvious in that the film is a basically a story about a girl finding her place mainly aimed for female viewers, and is just about the sexiest sport they could have chosen), the point of the main character's relationship is essentially "boyfriends actually stink so stick with your ladies". If you listen to Eva and Rosa's conversation, they flirt with "there's some stuff I'm pretty sure I could teach you". How does the final encounter between Bliss and Iron Maven go? Maven (someone who has been relatively antagonistic towards Bliss the whole film) compliments one of Bliss' moves and Bliss responds that she'll teach her sometime. If teaching someone something is this movie's gay code, that would definitely shed an interesting light on many interactions between Bliss and Maven, especially when the food-fight scene ends with the two of them rolling around on the floor, Maven laughing as she's pinning Bliss (Foe Yay anybody?). Mileage may vary, but I really feel that this film is intended more for the gay audience than most people realize. Which is great.
